I apologize to my regular readers for my recent hiatus. I’ve been battling a stomach illness for quite a while now and have barely spent any time in front of a computer screen the last couple of weeks.
I was able to attend the Walk/Bike California and APBP Professional Development Seminar last week in Davis. I gave a presentation titled Is Walkability and Bikability Really Better in California than the Midwest? All in all, I think it went pretty well considering I wasn’t able to practice much due to my illness, I only had 20 minutes, and my slide notes would not print! You may not get much out of the presentation considering I don’t use a lot of text in my slides—I prefer pictures and talking instead. However, I figured I would share it anyway. You can download the presentation here. [PDF – 4MB]
I will also be speaking at the California Chapter of the American Planning Association Statewide Conference in San Jose next month. I will be on a panel with Dustin Luther, the Director of Interactive Marketing for Move.com and founder of the Rain City Guide. Our panel is on Public Engagement through Web 2.0.
